We took Stella out of the water. First we removed her radar, windmill and boom. A crane hoisted her mast, than her body. It is always a strange experience seeing everything you own bungling in two hoist straps a couple of meters into the air. All 12.000 kg of fiberglass, metal and wiring together with some clothes, books and an iPad or two.
A renovation project to make her pretty starts next week. For the next six months, Stella will be sanded, painted and coated. Her rigging will be renewed. We add a new addition to her salon, a new galley, a new bathroom and a study/guestroom. We finish with a new central heating system and a boiler. Yeah. She’ll be nice,
